Lifts have to meet a large number of European design and safety demands. Depending on the type, a lift usually has to be delivered in accordance with the European Lifts guideline or the Machine guideline. Applying a certain norm has consequences for the version of the lift. Legislation with respect to lifts is complex and continuously subject to change.
In the Netherlands there are active suppliers who offer lifts according to the machine guideline, without a pit or headroom shaft, but with a speed higher than 0.15 m/s. These lifts are not permitted in the Netherlands and will not pass the inspection tests. Moreover, as the owner you have a liability risk in case of an accident. Axess only delivers lifts that are allowed and certified in the Netherlands. Should you have any questions or would like a further explanation, our advisors are happy to be of service!
